  HISTORY

The Poverty Elimination And Community Education (PEACE) Foundation is the child's brain of Bangladeshi citizens emigrated in America, who, after a long time of expatriation, felt the need to participate concretely in the development of their own country, and especially of their native place.

PEACE Foundation is born from these reflections and started in January 2007 its first intervention in Muktagasa Upazila under Mymensingh District in Bangladesh with a community development project.

The conception of the organization spreads out in the whole country, involving other Bangladeshi actors, emi- grants or inhabitants, in the huge challenge. The organization based its approach and strategy on the coopera tion, participation, and experience sharing with other Civil Society Organizations and collaboration with the Government.

Since its inception in January 2007, PEACE Foundation has been seeking to promote human rights, gender, economic and sustainable development based on bringing about positive social transformation at community and national level in Bangladesh.
